Rapping can be a dangerous job—and that goes double when you’re as committed to speaking the truth as Nino Bless is. While I doubt that new single This Song Might Get Me Killed will actually inspire murderous intentions on the part of its subjects (Otherwise, we’d be a little more hesitant to premiere it.), that doesn’t make the Brooklynite’s lyrical exposé of the double-edged nature of wealth, success and celebrity any less incisive. Scottzilla‘s ominous, choral vocal-fortified production accompanies Bless as he offers caustic, tightly-wound commentary on the entertainment industry. Virgin Islands crooner Rafijah Siano contributes a guest chorus. Illuminati Reject is slated to drop independently on Tuesday, August 26. In the meantime, of course, you can keep it locked for more fresh singles off the forthcoming set.
